We’ve come such a long way from the dark ages. We’re a modern society, constantly moving forward. That is partially why the fall of Roe is so stunning. But as we move forward, some still persist in staying behind. Some people are broken — broken by the darkness.
The Supreme Court is broken — or at least six of its Justices are. But of course, it is not just the Court. There are, all over this country, broken politicians, broken pundits, and broken voters.
These are the people who approve of cruelty. These are the people who spoke to the darkness — and listened as it spoke back. One of those people made her dark, broken identity loud and clear at a Trump rally the other night. Republican representative Mary Miller is her name, and racism is her game.
This Illinois Republican was delighted by the fall of Roe. And she wasted no time in telling people. At the Trump rally, she said the following: “It was a victory for WHITE life in the Supreme Court.” Nothing like saying the quiet part out loud.
Miller, whom the lord of the lies called “a warrior for our movement,” made this comment to Maga-verse — and was wildly cheered for it. White life. Just what the HECK does she mean by that? Don’t bother answering — we all know what she meant, do we not?
Of course, after saying it — she tried to take it back. Very shortly after saying this, the lady’s spokesperson insisted it was a slip of the tongue — and that what she really meant to say is “right to life.”
Freudian slip? Look — here are my thoughts on this story. This was no “accident.” It was no slip of the tongue. And even if it was — that doesn’t take away the sting and the dark cruelty of such a remark.
White life was trending on Twitter as Tweeters everywhere, many of whom are VERY intelligent, jeered at this pathetic woman for her pathetic remarks. But these types of comments may get worse until they get better. The cat’s out of the bag.
And those who would choose darkness do not seem to be able to stop their brokenness from slipping out and infecting others. It falls to us to call out these people when it happens.
